Praise

The witty Jarvis (“Lazy Dave”) makes all the right moves, drawing Alan’s jungle world with his usual loose, jagged charm.
—The New York Times Book Review

Jarvis (Lazy Dave) strikes a brisk, matter-of-fact tone that’s spot-on for his overconfident, inconsiderate hero, and he ties up the loose ends of the story with a clever best-of-both-worlds twist. His pictures are even better…They’re gorgeous—and thanks to his accomplished cartooning, they’re funny, too.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

A strength of the illustrations lies in the ability to convey emotion…
—Kirkus Reviews

This strong debut picture book will leave young listeners and librarians alike hungry for the author’s next offering. A perfect choice for storytime.
—School Library Journal

This book invites interaction with the story and plenty of action and noise as Alan makes his way through the jungle and on to a new identity. There is a nice message about being a friend as the story draws to a close. This is a good title for primary collections and collections that need strong, artistic storytelling on their shelves.
—School Library Connection

Digitally colored illustrations in pencil, chalk, and paint portray Alan as more of a goofball than a menace, while the jungle animals blend into the background—a good precaution with an alligator neighbor. The reformation of a bully is a familiar story, but Alan’s version is nicely told, and the eventual outcome is especially enjoyable.
